The story of Jephthah is an odd one. Tossed out by his people and yet here they stand before him in need of his leadership and saving. It’s a story that matches the story of Israel and God…but there is a huge difference between the two (and you’ll have to listen to get more). Continue reading Judges 10:6-11:11 The Patience of God
Today’s podcast is the later half of Gideon’s work as the Judge of God’s people. In the previous chapter we have God’s calling of Gideon and really working with Gideon through is fears and weakness and doubt with God’s calling in his life but what we get now is the actual battle to remove the oppression. It’s a story of continued doubt and God revealing that HIS work is at play here and that Gideon doesn’t need to worry about his own strength…because God’s got this already. Continue reading Judges 7:1-25 Our Weakness and His Strength
Judges 4 is a story about faith – but not the faithfulness of who you might think. Deborah is faithful, Barak is faithful too – but GOD is truly faithful. This story…is about God and his faithfulness to his people. Continue reading Judges 4:1-24 The Faithfulness of God
Today’s podcast jumps in to the second Judge in Israel’s history: Ehud. It’s a story that is intentional and meant to be humerous in the facts shared.

It’s a story that shows us the intentionality of a Judge all the while declaring the intentionality of God towards his undeserving children. Continue reading Judges 3:12-30 God’s Response to Undeserving People
Today’s podcast is our 2nd in the series and really should be seen as an “over-arching understanding” of the whole book of Judges. So while we don’t get specifically INTO a judge what we get is WHAT was going on and why. Continue reading Judges 2:6-23 The Saving Work of God
Today’s podcasts looks at the attempts of the different tribes of Israel as they begin to settle in the land God gave them. And what we see and find is that God gave them 2 tasks…and they fail at both. Continue reading Judges 1:19-2:5 Intentional Faithfulness
In today’s podcast we look at the shepherds and the fact that this most amazing news in the history of the world was given…to them. Why them? Why shepherds? Wouldn’t there have been better people to share this good news? Isn’t there worthier people to send a legion of angels to? Or even to do what the SHEPHERDS do later? Continue reading Luke 2:8-20 – The Announcement…to Shepherds?
